    Say i do incline db and flat db bench press on chest day.

    If i start with incline bench, will my #'s go down say 10-15lbs on flat bench....
    same situation if i start with flat bench, my #'s will go down.

    This is common sense right?

    Well for Example today....

    Started for the first time with Incline DB Bench
    Last work out i couldnt even get 70lb up for 1 rep...but i started with flat

    This time, i put up the 75lb for 8 reps

    But my flat db bench (which i did after) was 85lb for 8 reps, usually i can get the 90-95lb'ers

    Do you think the more i rest between sets, the more my muscle gets more fatigued?

    that makes no sense. The LESS you rest between sets, the more fatigue you accumulate

    I'm the same way...I just try and switch which one I do first every once in a while.

    I prefer to start with incline, since it is my weaker bench so it needs all the help it can get.
